Benazir Bhutto shaheed?

Benazir & Zardari

Benazir & Zardari

Shaheed is a title given to someone who is a martyr, a true patriot, who lives for his/her homeland and dies for his/her home land. Shaheed is a very respectable word which carries great dignity and yet used to blow the bubble of greatness for a corrupt politician like Benazir Bhutto.

It makes me laugh as well makes me angry when I look at the media campaing being conducted by channels like “Ary Oneworld” to portray a positive imgae of Benazir Bhutto. A few years ago this channels (like others) was reporting that Bhutto was one of the most corrupt prime minister of Pakistan. This channel also relayed the figures of monetary scams , how different funds were looted, how china electricity power hub project was shambelled etc etc etc. Then there was a timeline of events which saw the following:-

1. Irresponsible behaviour of media.
2. Dramatising events involving strikes on national securtiy.
3. Decleration of emergency in November by Former President Pervaiz Musharaf.
4. Return of Benazir Bhutto.
5. Assasination of Benazir Bhutto.    

The top three events in time line of media left a sour taste for media againt Former President Pervaiz Musharaf and this is where the sides started to change and suddenly Former President Pervaiz Musharaf became the bad guy and politicians like Benazir Bhutto & Nawaz Sharif were hailed as national hero’s. The media which was reformed, given freedom and given respect by Pervaiz Musharaf finally started to show its true colours againts Pervaiz Musharaf. 

Its sad to see that these days that the channle “Aryone World” is airing unlimited clips of Benazir Bhutto with the caption “Tasveerein jo amar hogein” .  It now seems such an easy task to chair corruption in one of the highest elected office,  get several innocent people kill (including your own brother), then die at the hands of your old allies and you get an airport named after you, get your picture on a 10 R.s coin and have larger potraits as compared to Jinnah’s in televised interviews to international media. Yes, all this is was awarded to corrupt Benazir after her assasination and God knows what else is coming. May be they are thinking to name Pakistan as “Benaziristan”.

Its amazing to see the type of denial Pakistani soceity is being lured into. Benazir was surely great but she wasnt great in leadership, She was great in corruption, killings, lies and deceptive behaviour. She was a great planner in murder of her own brother (Murtaza Bhutto), she showed larger greatness when she shook hands with people who were involved in hanging her very own father, Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.  For all these reason Pakistani people have accepted Benazir Bhutto as the daughter of east and titled her “Shaheed”. All I say is if such greatness, which all the time talked about, was really there then alongwith returning from a self imposed exile last year she would have brought all that money back into the country, which she and her beloved husband looted in her short but damaging tenure. But no, instead of this  the Bhutto family now enjoys the fruits of corruption and they will keep on enjoying it till the end of Pakistan.
The thing which really scares me is in the past Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto costed the division of Pakistan (We are still paying the price of it) and in the present Persident Asif Zardari might cost Pakistan something more grave. (And we will pay the price of if for the rest of our lives).  

East & West Pakistan.

East & West Pakistan.

These days the coverage being given to Benazir’s death anniversary is something really new to me and I am sure its new to the whole nation of Pakistan as well. I have never ever seen a slide show trying to improve the image of the worst prime minister in the history of  Pakistan. If the media really wants to bring greatness to life then why doesnt the media concentrate on leaders like Mr Jinnah, Miss Jinnah, Liaquat Ali Khan and others who truly achieved greatness by dedicating their lives for the sake of Pakistan….. 

The question arises is.
  “Who will make a difference? There wont be any more Moses or Mohammad…..”
